I know this coin is messed up, but it looks so cool. Kinda like abstract art looking.

There are a million ways post mint damage can happen. Intentionally battering and defacing a coin because "it looks so cool" is just one of the ways.

As someone older who bends over to pick up anything shiny from the ground, I'd say, Road Kill /Parking Lot coin is a perfect answer.

There is nothing you could do to a cent could top what we used to do. Ever seen a cent after it was run over by a locomotive?
